Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hanover District Curriculum
In Math, quantitative and abstract reasoning are developed and students are able to analyze and model data during problem-solving. The Science curriculum offers students the chance to understand the process of inquiry and evaluating theories. The English curriculum enables interpretative and verbal reasoning ability for students through the reading, writing and oral communication in class. In History and Social Studies, students understand change and continuity through their study of topics like politics and economics.
The curriculum is also the basis for assessments which students take, which may be either formal or informal. Teachers are able to use quizzes, unit tests, and projects to ensure that students are mastering content and the province-wide assessments ensure that all students are achieving the expectations and that instruction is serving its purpose.

Hanover District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used in the districts which Hanover’s students attend. The curriculum is a very broad series of documents which explain the progress students will make from kindergarten to the end of high school within each subject. Both core academics and enrichment subjects are guided by the curriculum. Within each subject, the curriculum clearly states which skills and content students are expected to learn each year. The early grades provide the foundational knowledge and the later grades require that students understand the subject on a more analytic level. Each subject develops students’ ability to process information and learning challenges differently. To facilitate success beyond the classroom, the schools have formed many partnerships with local businesses and organizations.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Tips for Taking the ACT
The ACT is an important test for students because many colleges and universities take ACT scores into account when determining acceptance and financial aid awards. There are several tips students can use to improve their score. Taking subject tests as soon as possible after the conclusion of the associated class is the best choice for students in order to keep the subject matter as fresh in their minds as possible. It is also a good idea for students to answer the easiest questions first. This allows them to ensure they have enough time to answer all questions, while also helping them build some confidence by answering a number of questions easily. Before taking the ACT, students should take advantage of the many practice tests that are available online and in print. Reviewing practice tests familiarizes students with the structure of exams and the way in which directions and questions are worded.
